Our October Team Meeting & Demo

At our Bluegrass Etsy team meeting in October, we met at Heitzman's Bakery in Louisville. We had our business meeting and special guest Kelli Seltzer from All Things Louisville Online described her new site and how she could help team members with online sales. We concluded the meeting with a cardmaking and Cricut demonstration from Gail Walker of MissDaisyW and then a "destash" swap. Here are some photos from the meeting!
